How do you double up the denim without causing too much of a stir? There are a few simple rules to styling denim-on-denim to create a fashion statement that never fails!
1. Choose from light and dark shades
If you’re wearing a denim shirt or jacket and denim jeans, don’t just go for different shades of blue. Try different colours and patterns – like black jeans and a blue shirt or jacket. Contrasting colours always go nicely but if you’re looking to wear shades of blue, try a very light shade with a darker one. A daring trend to try is monochrome denim!
2. Stick to the same wash
If you’re going for a single shade of denim, stick to a single wash too! Too many different patterns can create a messy look so whether it is stonewashed, acid-washed, dark washed or any of the endless washes denim come in, choose your top and bottom in the same one.
3. Vary denim thickness
The weight of denim matters. Denim jackets and jeans tend to be much thicker and heavier than denim shirts or t-shirts. Pick one heavy piece of clothing to match its lighter counterpart. A good way to go is heavy jeans with a light shirt, especially if it’s the same shade.
4. Mix it up with prints & embellishments
Patchwork, typography, logos, embroidery… add some embellishments to your denim look to make it stand out from your all-denim gear. It adds a visual focal point and breaks up the single texture, and adds a touch of personalization too.
